    Convert from Word 98 for Mac to Word 97 for Window

    Is there a way to convert a file created in Word 98 for Mac to Word 97 for Windows? When the Mac user is emailing me the file, it doesn't come with a file type, and nothing will open it without changing it to screen garbage. Thanks!

    Thanks for the response; however, when I go to that KB article, it refers to a dead link at Microsoft. We got it done another way, but you'd think it wouldn't be a big deal!

    I did try downloading 2 different converters from Microsoft, and neiter of them solved the problem. I found them at

    If I find anything else, I'll post back. I hope you do the same...at least the next person won't have the same run around. You would think it would be more straight forward.
